Tiger Woods's Masters win delivers high ratings for CBS

Tiger Woods wins Masters to claim first major since 2008

It was the highest-rated golf broadcast since the final round of last year's Masters.

As well as becoming the first Italian to win a major championship, Molinari won the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth, his first PGA Tour title in the Quicken Loans National - a tournament hosted by Woods - and he became the first European to compile a flawless 5-0 record in the Ryder Cup.

The American sportswear brand were one of the only sponsors to stick with Woods during his prolonged period of career turbulence but it appears that decision has paid dividends.

Tiger Woods of the United States chews gum on the second hole during the second round of the Masters at Augusta National Golf Club on April 12, 2019 in Augusta, Georgia.

While down 11% from last year's much later PM broadcast Masters Final Round, Woods' first major USA victory since 2008 is the best any early AM golf airing has done in 34 years on any network.

The next two are at venues well suited to his game and where he has won - the PGA Championship at Bethpage and the 2000 U.S. Open at Pebble Beach where he triumphed by a massive 15 strokes.

Rickie Fowler and Justin Thomas, neighbours in south Florida who often play with Woods, expressed a mixture of excitement and trepidation.

In 2010, Williams wrote that she hoped to catch Woods' major championship total with her Grand Slam total.

"He's been there a lot, more than anyone, but it had been a while since he had a chance to win here".

"I thought it was probably an $85 or $8,500 bet", he explained.

More immediately, Woods can become the most prolific victor in PGA Tour history. I was a little better at the PGA [US PGA Championship], but still I didn't win.

FanDuel confirmed over $3 million in losses, with over $1 million a result of a promise to participants in a contest that all would get a refund if Woods won.

Having said that, yesterday wasn't exactly an easy one for Woods.
